When NAXCOM purchased "The Pit" from Topps, you figured there would be changes. The company is hoping to grab more visibility by getting it’s inventory into the MLB.com marketplace.
Major League Baseball and NAXCOM.com/ThePit.com "Sportscard Marketplaces" have formed a partnership in which the bulk of ThePit.com baseball card inventory will be placed for sale on the MLB.com Marketplace.
"This is a great opportunity for ThePit.com and all of the Baseball Cards listed in ThePit.com Marketplace," said Eric Beckerman, CEO of NAXCOM/ThePit. "Because ThePit.com focuses on having large quantities of the top Rookie Cards of the top stars and prospects, we were a perfect fit for the MLB.com Marketplace," Beckerman continued.
ThePit.com now has a little over 10 percent of its Baseball Card inventory listed on MLB.com with much more to be added in the near future. "We are very excited about what this MLB partnership will do for sales of ThePit.com Baseball Card products. NAXCOM will also receive some extra brand exposure as well, so it’s a win-win for us," commented Bill Elder, VP of Marketing for NAXCOM/ThePit.
"When we acquired ThePit.com from the Topps Company, we knew that we had to add more sales venues to get this incredible inventory in front of more collectors," continued Elder. "This relationship with MLB.com will be a big step in the right direction."
In its first few days, ThePit.com has already seen an increase in its baseball card sales. As more items from ThePit.com are added to MLB.com, and especially as baseball season gets closer, those that use ThePit.com are bound to see their baseball card portfolio increase significantly.
"Because there are so many baseball fans on the MLB.com site and because ThePit.com bulk inventory is so unique, the demand for ThePit items will grow substantially. This will not only create more liquidity, but will also increase the values of the baseball cards available on ThePit," said Kevin Klein, Business Development for NAXCOM/ThePit.
